The Welcome Church is working with partners towards the opening of an overnight winter shelter for women, called “The Well”
(the name chosen because of the fact that in many parts of the world, women still gather at wells for both social interaction and the alleviation of physical need, and because we know that a certain woman once had a life changing encounter with the divine at a well).
The anticipated opening date of The Well is February 14. Many hands make light work, and anyone who can help in any of the following ways will be a blessing to us! The goal of The Well is to provide overnight shelter for a group of no larger than 12 women who are experiencing homelessness, as a pilot program to see if this model is helpful to the building of relationships and trust, as part of outreach to some of the most vulnerable people who live out on the streets. The Well will remain open through April 30. Please refer to the lists below to find out the many ways you can help!
